Another fun thing to look into...is a petting zoo or farm that you can visit. We were lucky enough to visit one while on vacation. If you live near Gilbert, Arizona...go & visit Marley Farms. It was a blast! We had someone show us around & tell us about all of the animals. The kids loved feeding all of the animals & listening to their noises.
We also were also able to pet some goats & llamas. The kids made observations about how the animals felt different.
It was a great experience & the boys learned so much! It was great. Enjoy your summer!
